Newly diagnosed chemo meeting with chemo doc tomorrow, anticipating chemo radiation to start on August 19. I am in shock, never having been sick and considered in peak of health. This was discovered via routine colonoscopy, large polyp removed surgically turned out positive for cancer and two prominent lymph nodes identified. Assumption is lymph node invasion, but that has not been confirmed and UCSF tumor board recommended aggressive treatment and surgical removal. Thanks for this discussion board as there is comfort in numbers.
Any words of wisdom, suggestions, etc. would be greatly appreciated.
